Book Review: An Invitation To The Garden By Michael Devine

When the nice people over at Rizzoli Publishing asked if I’d like to review an advance copy of An Invitation to the Garden: Seasonal Entertaining Outdoorsby Michael Devine, I happily accepted.

I’ve been a fan of Michael Devine’s colorful design work for years. 

Once this book arrived I was pleasantly surprised to see that in addition to an abundance of inspirational ideas for outdoor entertaining and beautiful photography, I was also getting a very creative cook book as well. 

With fifty mouthwatering recipes included, I know I’ll be turning to this chic book for entertaining tips this spring. 

As Charlotte Moss wrote in the the forward here, you can “delight in all things Devine”…and that’s exactly what I intend to do!

Now if spring would only hurry up and get here!

PS: More beautiful garden inspiration!

which are and always will be my own.
